    Come on Apple!!

    Not a very protective case, and a lot of dust gets trapped inside the case and the back of the laptop. It had broke on the first day I got it and maybe add new colours preferably green and red ;)

    Do Not Buy

    • Written by from Hempstead

    This case is more so to protect the surface of your computer. It will be useless if you drop it. I dropped my computer (while it was in a bag & in this case) & it still has a dent. It is useful when on unknown surfaces that may be dirty, wet, or sticky. However, you can probably find something much cheaper for that purpose. Don't waste your money. This thing should be no more than $15.

    Recent Purchase Spec 13" SmartShell Case

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I purchased this case about 2 months ago and it's never stayed on correctly. The bottom half never seems to snap in place and always slides off when I take my laptop out of my briefcase.

    complete waste of money

    • Written by from Decatur

    I use my macbook air as a television basically, therefore I keep it in the same place almost every single day. However I just had to upgrade my case. Why you ask? Oh just because my case was scratched, broken, and then there's the fact that the bottom half wouldn't even stay on anymore! I am now using the Tech 21 case for my 13" macbook air and love it! It fits perfectly, it snaps on much better, and it is very firm, I would recommend it to anyone! Despite the fact that it is a little more expensive, it is worth every penny!

    Ultra Flimsy

    • Written by from Whitestone

    After a week of carrying my mac with the Speck case in my backpack (normal wear and tear?), this case had fallen to pieces! The Mac is completely scratched up, worse than it would have been without the case on it...
    After paying $50 for this case, I was shocked and disappointed that it was NOT protective and that it shattered for no reason within days!

    Not impressed

    • Written by from Red Deer

    I loved it when I first got it but it cracks all the time. Just from setting it on my couch there are cracks everywhere. For the price this case doesn't hold up at all.

    Terrible Waste of Money

    • Written by from Kilbride

    My Speck case started to crack in the first month. By the third month, it was garbage. I recently bought another, much cheaper case from another company and it's 10 times better for half the price! Don't waste your money on this one!

    AWFUL, cracked within weeks of purchase

    • Written by from WEST SAINT PAUL

    This product is not worth anywhere near $50! The plastic shell began to crack within weeks of purchasing it. I don't travel with my laptop and when I do it's in a soft sleeve. I should have saved my receipt and packaging... also read reviews before buying. Save your $50 for a better product, I know there's one out there.

    Ok, then terrible

    • Written by from Ottawa

    This is one of the most deceiving products I've ever purchased. It work ok at first, then after a few dings it started to crack eventually the support edges just simply detached. A waste of 50 dollars if you ask me. Go buy some ethernet adapters or something

    Bad Option

    • Written by from Brentwood

    The case was a Cbristmas present and has now broken and cracked in multiple places. It had no unusual or rough use, primarily around the house. The plastic is just brittle and degraded in less than 90 days. Would not buy this again.

    WORST WASTE OF MONEY EVER!!!!

    • Written by from Hamilton

    Ok so I got this case for my birthday (March 16th) from my grandmother who did in fact pay for this case. This case is now (March 25th, not even 10 days of having it) cracked, and the clips are all broken. I take good care of my laptop including the case because I am not a person who wants to pay for something twice so I take care of my things. I am very disappointed, and upset to tell my grand-mother she just wasted $50. Thanks Apple... thanks for wasting old people's money -.-

    worth it

    • Written by from Buras

    I have had this clear, hard, snap on case for three years now. It has scratched and broken in places (no cracks, just the snap locks), and that's why I'm looking to replace it. I was surprised to see all the negative reviews for this case. It is difficult to get on and off, but I feel like that is a good thing, because its not going to come off of my computer. It is like a second skin for my laptop, and I don't even know its there. I have many furry pets, and fur gets everywhere, but this case does a fairly good job of keeping stuff out. Every three months, I take the case off and clean my lap top. It still looks as good as the day I bought it. My laptop has ZERO scratches on it! If you ask me, this case did 100% of what it was supposed to (macs are notorious for scratching, and look awful once they've been scratched). Over all a wonderful product to me.

    A poor quality product

    • Written by from Keene

    I had this case on for 1 day, and one of the clasps cracked. Since then, the case sometimes will slip off, and even more of the clasps have broken. The top half is okay, but the bottom half of the case is dreadful.

    Before I bought this case, I spent half the money to get a hard shell case on Amazon (and it came with a keyboard and screen protector!), and it lasted for 3 years. This has lasted 2 months, so I'm never buying this brand again. Buyer beware!

    Above Average Case.

    • Written by from Mount pearl

    Pros: - Customize / Personalize your Macbook to give it that "you" flair.
    - Protect your Macbook from every day scuffs and scratches, awful gouging and dents
    - Offers some drop protection ( off of lap, short distance.. with in reason)

    Cons:
    - Poor Packaging can often cause the case to arrive already scratched ( edit* They have recently started a new package design to address this)
    - The corner clips of the case have an unfortunate frequency of cracking off
    - Protection from dropping is an absolute minimum ( But really .... don't drop your computer)

    I work In an APR and we sell speck, I've seen customers return unhappy with the integrity of the case ( Cracking, splitting, clips breaking )
    and I've seen customers come in saying that their friends won't shut up about the case and that they have to get one too.

    I personally have never had one of my speck cases break, crack or split, I would recommend this product.
    My Red Pro and Blue Air have never looked better, Talk about increasing your resale value, no scratches at all? Cha Ching.

    Speck Macbook Air Case

    • Written by from Ashland

    I purchased this case for my 13 inch macbook air yesterday in calypso blue. For $50, I hoped for something more with a longer warranty than 1 year. I can already see scratches on the front that are quite visible.. Other than that, I like the color and feel better knowing that my laptop is somewhat protected. I also enjoy that you can see the apple logo through the case and it lights up.

    Cracks within a month of use

    • Written by from Chicago

    Don't be fooled by the attractive color. All the clips that attach this cover to my MacAir have broken/cracked, rending this thing horribly useless after a month of owning it. It goes from my protected bag to a desk to a lap desk without being banged around. Save your $50. I'm so sad I wasted a gift card on something that broke so easily.

    Zero stars is really my rating

    • Written by from Broomall

    This is an awful waste of money. Cheap cheap garbage plastic that cracks VERY EASILY when you open your macbook. It seems that bottom corners crack very easily when you open your macbook and you may not notice it until you see that the bottom will not stay on any longer. This is my second purchase of this case because I thought that maybe the first one was just bad luck. I was wrong, it's an awful product and should be given out for free because that's really all it's worth.....NOTHING!!! Same problem BOTH times, cracked bottom corners.

    Horrible Quality

    • Written by from Ajax

    I purchased this case primarily because I had a similar Speck hardshell case for my MacBook Pro. I've had the Pro version for 3+ years without any issues. But the MackBook Air version I purchased cracked along the edge within the first few months. Within less than a year, several of the attachment points have broken off the case, so it no longer stays on my computer and is basically useless. I am very careful with my computer, and from reading the other reviews case cracking seems to be a common issue. Don't waste your money on this product, it does not last!

    Disappointed considering my last Speck case was amazing

    • Written by from Austin

    I had a Speck cover for my old Macbook, which my husband commandeered and it is still going strong (cover and computer). I figured since I was getting a new precious piece of machinery, I should invest in another Speck cover (especially since the last one did it's job so well). When I got this $53 cover, I was surprised at how flimsy it was and that it didn't have the grippy texture my last cover had. I figured since my last cover was legit, this one would somehow do the same job. WRONG...this thing has cracks all over it and I have not dropped it once! I submitted my claim to Speck today, since it has a 1-year warranty. I guess we'll see how that goes, but as of now I feel like this case is a total rip-off!
